Sound Architect, DJ, Producer & Cosmic B-Boy Praying Mantis
An extraordinary figure in the second generation of Techno producers to emerge from the electronic music explosion of the late 1980s and early 1990s, Cari Lekebusch has sustained over thirty full-time years in music through an unwavering commitment and an unquenchable desire to constantly move things forward.
Credited as being one of the figureheads of the globally influential Swedish Techno scene that subsequently spawned internationally recognised names such as Adam Beyer, Alexi Delano, Abi Bah, Joel Mull, Jesper Dahlback, Pär Grindvik, Petter B, Benjamin Mull, Nima Khak, Nihad Tule, Patrik Skoog and Skudge. Lekebusch’s standing as a studio innovator and production authority is well documented. He has borne many pseudonyms over the course of his illustrious career including; Fred (Missile Records), Mr Barth (Svek, Plumphouse), Braincell (Harthouse) and his electro moniker Mystic Letter K to name a few.
He has experimented with sounds across a range from Techno and House to Electro and Ambient; releasing on well respected labels such as Novamute, Soma, Primevil, Harthouse, Missile, Turbo, Mote-Evolver, 430 West, ISL, Moln Records, Sleaze, Svek, Drumcode, Truesoul, CLR and his own label imprint H-Productions.
While still in highschool Cari started his label H-Productions to be able to always have an un-compromised platform for his most personal experiments. The label has since 1986 featured an impressive array of extraordinary sound architects from around the globe and has undergone many changes, that obviously are a reflection of Cari’s own desire to develop as a producer. The term sound architect describes his work as a performer, and he is an instinctive and imaginative DJ with a distinctive style that has earned him a loyal and intelligible supporter base. Invited as a regular guest to many of the premier Techno clubs and events across the globe, Cari is most at home playing sets that wiggle between full on peak time exuberance and ever so slightly off the wall weirdness.
